Anti-Obama Doc Doing Well at Box Office, Nationwide Release This Weekend
"2016: Obama's America" is already the #2 grossing non-nature documentary this year
An anti-Obama documentary based on conservative author Dinesh D'Souza's book The Roots of Obama's Rage will expand nationwide this weekend after doing notable business in select markets across the country—including in liberally minded New York City.
Overall, 2016: Obama's America grossed an impressive $1.2 million last weekend as it upped its theater count from 61 to 169 for a total gross of $2 million, the second-best showing of the year for a documentary after Bully ($3.2 million). That doesn't include nature documentaries Chimpanzee ($29 million) and To the Arctic ($7.6 million).
